The Debian X Strike Force guys rock. They take a lot of crap, and they take it in stride. (I should learn from them…) First they did the famous “How about…” banner for their webpage (since sanitized to remove the quote for those easi..well, offendable, anyway) …now an hilarious post WRT a screwup in the recent xlibs update:

“Somehow I managed to take a hit off the crack pipe when prepping the XKB data updates in 4.3.0.dfsg.1-2.

A patch file to fix this is attached.

(Yes, I’ve tested this fix.)

Here’s how to use it.

1) Save the attachment someplace like /tmp.

2) Become root.

3) cd / && patch -p0 < /tmp/unfuck_numlock.diff

Sorry for the fuckup.”

That made me laugh out loud!
